About this item

Set at a low-end summer camp and aimed squarely at a teen audience, "Meatballs" is a light screwball comedy that turned its low-budget Canadian roots into a very profitable box-office run. The biggest reason for the film's success is Bill Murray who stars as Tripper, the head counselor who runs things at Camp Northstar with the help of his love interest Roxanne (Kate Lynch) and the camp's director Morty (Harvey Atkins), who is affectionately known as Mickey. Camp opens with Tripper and Morty preparing the misfit counselors-in-training - Spaz, Fink, Crockett, A.L., Candace, Wendy, and Wheels among them - for the arrival of their hyperactive little charges. After settling in, kids and counselors begin their activities with a soccer game in which depressed 11-year-old Rudy (Chris Makepeace) accidentally loses the game. Cast out by the other children, Rudy runs away only to come across Tripper, who befriends the boy and makes him his running partner. Romance, sexy fun, and comic hijinx - usually with the heavy-sleeping Morty as their target - lead up to an annual Olympiad in which Camp Northstar battles the wealthier and athletically superior residents of Camp Mohawk. The challenging events include cup stacking, potato-sack racing, and a nauseating hot dog-eating contest in which the portly Fink devours his way to victory. With the two-day event tied up, it comes down to the cross-country run, in which Tripper enters Rudy. "Meatballs" was the first major directorial effort by multi-talented filmmaker Ivan Reitman, whose name has since become synonymous with the comedy genre.

This movie was made before i was born but it is one of my all-time favorite comedies. This is Bill Murray's first starring role which he did wonderfully. This movie is full of laughs and sweet moments. It's a MUST own in your collection.

I'm really surprised more people have never seen this movie. It's been a favorite of mine for years. It appeals to anyone over 10 years old. Very funny and touching in places. The DVD has an interesting bonus feature with interviews and comments by stars and technicians as well as odd bits about the film.
